“Just Something About Her with Jennifer Palmieri” is hosted by the former communications director for the Obama White House and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. Palmieri explores why — after decades of making steady progress — women find themselves banging up against the same glass ceilings. The show features interviews with powerful women from business, politics, the arts and journalism to learn how they found a way to break through and create their own path to success.

Hannah Gadsby
On opposite sides of the world, immersed in completely different careers, Jennifer Palmieri and comedian Hannah Gadsby’s thoughts were turning in the same direction. What if trying to fit the male mold of success was more work than it was worth? What if they could build something better? They both found out; Hannah with her groundbreaking 2018 Netflix comedy special Nanette and Jen with her best-selling book Dear Madame President. In this episode, Jen and Hannah talk about the freedom and limits of stand-up comedy, the moment Hannah realized comedy's status quo wasn’t working for her, and what happens when a culture used to one kind of story has to make room for more voices.

Valerie Jarrett
Valerie Jarrett was known as “the Obama whisperer” when she worked as a senior adviser to President Obama. But the title doesn't do her justice: she is a lawyer, an author, a former CEO, an advocate for women and girls, a new grandmother and a longtime mentor to Jennifer Palmieri. In this episode of "Just Something About Her," Jennifer calls Valerie “the most confident person in the entire White House" and gets her advice on how women can stand their ground in the halls of power. Valerie and Jennifer also talk about how to level the playing field in a gendered workplace, how women in Obama’s administration banded together to improve their standing, and how to ask for a raise.

Maggie Haberman
The New York Times' White House correspondent Maggie Haberman is equally one of the most famous, most respected, and most reviled political journalists in America. Jennifer Palmieri, host of "Just Something About Her" and former Head of Communications for the Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign and Obama White House, has known Maggie for years, since Maggie was the City Hall reporter for the New York Post. Jennifer asks Maggie about the accusation that she is an "access journalist," how she balances work with parenthood, and what objectivity means in the Trump era. Jennifer and Maggie share how gender has played a role in their careers, and in the unending criticism Maggie receives.

Charlotte Clymer
In the first episode of “Just Something About Her,” our host Jennifer Palmieri speaks to writer and activist Charlotte Clymer about navigating her past and present as a trans woman who grew up in Texas, joined the military, and eventually went on to be a widely published writer with a controversial Twitter presence. Jennifer Palmieri is the former Communications Director for the Obama White House and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. She uses her communications expertise to illuminate underlying messages – and often unconscious biases – in the way women are spoken about, treated, and often view themselves. Charlotte and Jennifer discuss the quid pro quo Charlotte faces as a trans woman with self-described “practical politics” and how there is currently no playbook for trans women facing discrimination. Charlotte also addresses criticism she faced as leader of a women’s equality Facebook group before coming out.
